In the run-up to panto season, this exhibition will celebrate 125 years of the Grand Theatre. From its opening in 1894 to today, the Theatre has seen many prominent actors and performers tread the boards, including a young Charlie Chaplin in 1902, and future television stars such as June Whitfield and Leonard
Rossiter. The Theatre played host
to other significant events too,
such as the visit by Prime Minister David Lloyd George to launch his post-war election campaign in 1918 with his 'Homes fit for Heroes' speech. It was also chosen as the venue for the worldwide premiere of
Agatha Christie's play, Verdict. This exhibition will showcase some of the key events in the history of the Grand.
